 Fezziwig was an old, jolly man, who gave Scrooge and another worker the night off for Christmas Eve. Scrooge and his friend quickly cleaned up and built a cozy fire. Several more people came in and a party ensued. Scrooge enjoyed himself immensely until the party ended, when he remembered he was merely revisiting the scene with the Ghost. Scrooge tells the Ghost that Fezziwig's gift of happiness to his friends far outweighed the money he spent on the party. Fezziwig is the paragon of friendship, and this scene makes Scrooge reflect on his own callous treatment of his employees.
